Stay at home order

My son got laid off, and we're tackling a few projects together. I finished my solar perimeter lighting and water feature system, trimmed my fruit trees, fixed a broken fence post, and other projects. I'm retired but having a second pair of hands really helps a lot. https://i.postimg.cc/DZ1DWCwf/sol...

Corona Virus

Doing great here. Florida seems to be rather steady. I only go out for necessities, but the clowns that bought up all of the toilet paper, hand towels, disinfectant, chicken, lesser cuts of meat, water and others too silly to mention sent us a message. When things get straightened out again, in the ...

Ugly stik USSP601H

FUNNY followup... For Christmas my GF had her son get me a custom rod which was a surprise but he got what HE likely would like to own, knowing another biggie + for the Ugly is it fits in my "fisher bike" and clears trees that overhang my path. Well, she made me bring it back and the builder said he...

Best 1980's Power Rock Band Ballads

My son grew up listening to 60's through 80's music, he thinks his generation is a bit daft listening to what they like. From Abba, the Beatles, CSNY, Deep purple to ZZ top and Frank Zappa there's no "best". Anyway it's good that phone memory card support finally got large enough to fit my entire CD...

How many boats have oarlock mounts?

I know many or maybe even most 8'-12' tin boats have oarlock mounts, but do they at all LOA available?

I ask because as far as I know the Coast guard still advises an oar or paddle as "auxillary propulsion" but realistically who would want one oar (or two for that matter) on a stranded boat?

Insurance

PS. 9 years ago I was paying $5k per year in homeowner's insurance. They sent me a letter saying I needed to have my hurricane abatement stuff reevaluated for the discount. Long story short, in order to keep the $500 discount they wanted me to replace my previously replaced hurricane rated garage do...

SUNRISE...MANY MONTHS AGO

I stopped to take these on the way to fish at Shark Valley in So. Flo. last year. That's fog in a huge field, no water was there at all.

Three battery dilemma - Sea Nymph 14R

Depth finders are 600 series and draw combined 1.5 amps. Trolling motor has down imaging and rear unit has down and side scan. I was thinking I could probably get away with a small car battery, thinking I only need roughly 18 amp/hour at the greatest. No charging system, basic pull start 20 hp. Har...

Securing decorative stones

Thanks Rich, I did not know great stuff made that. It looks pretty good except if it's anything like the regular great stuff, it expands in an uncontrollable manner and makes a real mess out of anything it touches. For now I'm going to live with it and maybe later on get a tube of the Liquid nails "...

Hauling a 12 foot deep v without a trailer

Since you're already toting a similar boat, if you can get it in and keep the bow and stern steady side to side, and you're OK with the overhang from the tailgate you're good to go, just be sure to follow your state cargo protrusion / overhang marking law. I don't think that the beam at 60" will be ...

Aluminum "Kayak"

An 8 footer may be OK if it's just you and you don't go about the boat like it's 16' long. FWIW, I've seen a couple of Lowe 1040's up central Fla. (a VERY stable boat) way pretty inexpensively. Look to the spacecoast, and Tampa Craig's list. Anyway, I hand launch mine regularly from my truck bed whe...
